Napo corydoras are omnivorous and will accept all foods offered. Give them quality flakes or pellets and a weekly treat of blood worm or brine shrimp.


South America; Napo corydoras inhabit the Napo River, which is a tributary of the River Amazon.


Males tend to be smaller and slimmer in profile, there pattern is also more striking.


As with most Corydoras, large and cooler water changes will induce the spawning process. Corydoras napoensis will lay their eggs on the tank glass or on the leaves of fine leaved plants. The eggs should hatch after 4-5 days, once the fry are free swimming they can be fed on newly hatched brine shrimp or rotifers
